It's election time again, which means time for another liveblog. I (Andrew Norton) will be covering the election, focusing on the 6 pirates up for election, and I'll be assisted in that by various pirates including Wendy Cockroft, and Stephen Ogden.
Those 6 lucky Pirate candidates are:
- Loz Kaye (Leader) - Manchester Central
- Sam Clark - Salford and Eccles
- Cris Chesha - Manchester Gorton
- David Elston - Bridgend
- Andy Halsall - Sheffield Central
- Mark Chapman - Vauxhall (London)
We'll start with some coverage of the campaigning, and stick right through until we know the results.
